“Grudge Match” Podcast Movie Review

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in Grudge Match

Grudge Match (2013; Peter Segal) – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 1

In Round 1 of the Dare Daniel podcast, fierce rivals Daniel and Corky trade punches on Peter Segal’s Grudge Match, starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as shells of their former selves.  Daniel and Corky go the distance in their discussion, touching on tarnished legacies, the immorality of septuagenarian violence, sparks factories and the true meaning of “butterscotch jellybeans.”
